Valiant is the brand name of engines developed by VBMotorsport. The brand was launched at the beginning of the 2015 season after winning a binning process announced by the league in mid January. Valiant took the place of the now-defunct Krevder engine line.
Despite new rules limiting the contribution customer teams make towards engine development, the Valiant has had a highly successful first year so far. As of the 2015 Brazilian Grand Prix, a Valiant-powered car has won seven grands prix; six for Vod:Bul and one for Red Archer.
Valiant's strong debut season encouraged all of the manufacturer's 2015 customers to continue using Valiant engines in the 2016 season. Furthermore, three additional teams (Hawkeye, Nijo and Storm) opted to use Valiant engines, resulting in Valiant supplying seven teams in the 2016 sesson - over half of the grid.
2017 saw quite a change in the Valiant line-up. Nijo withdrew from the series, Green Stripes went to Trinity while Hawkeye formed its own engine brand, Talos, and took Edonis with them. Nonetheless, three new teams joined; Kernow Sport, which was the only Superleague veterans to sign up, were joined by the two promoted teams. MadCape and Streetfighter. Despite having one less customer than previously, Valiant's dominance of the market remained; Valiant in 2017 will be the only engine to supply more than two teams, and still account for half of the field.
